Review Monday Week 4

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

It's our 4th Review Monday already

This week I would like to review:

Mimi supplied me with an ebook copy to review
but all views expressed are my own.

She’s Me By Mimi Barbour.

The basis of the story is a self obsessed B*tch (Jenna) gets her soul transported back in time into another woman’s body (Lucy). It’s the story of how something and someone can change you for the better. 
 I would highly recommend it as a good read.
 It’s the sort of story that fills you with a happy glow. 
 I loved the twists and turns in the story and how each character came into the story to play their own part. 
I love how each character plays off each other and how you don’t get confuse who is where because they have their own distinct character.
I would say give the start a chance – it was a bit too descriptive, when trying to set the background for the story, for me. 
 I also wish the ending had been a bit longer. 
 I would of liked to stretch the love stories out a bit more and learn more about the way their relationships develop.  
I would of also liked to have heard more of the conversations so we could see how they had changed.
As a first book this is fantastic and shows so much promise for the future. 
 I would highly recommend this book and all future books by this author.

I am also taking part in:
The questions for today are:
Review/Guest post requests: 
Do you have a review request policy? The only policy I have is that my review has to be honest and if there isn't something I like about it then I have to be honest about it. 
Has it changed over time? I'm really new to reviewing so still on the learning curve.
How do you handle requests that don’t meet your criteria? I haven't had any yet but I would inform them that I wouldn't do a review.
 In the past, what types of "pitches" have caught your attention?  An honest one that says about the good and the bad.
Are there any (non-specific) examples of requests that are off-putting to you as a blogger? Not yet but I'm still new.

  1. I update my policy all the time. Every time I think I've got everything covered a new requests pops up to show me that I don't lol
    I do have in my policy that my review will be honest.

    1. I am sure I will probably to have to do more in the future. Thanks for your comments.

  2. I just created a review policy and I hope it helps! I can see where it might need to be updated every once in a while. I get requests all the time that don't meet my needs, and every once in a while I do book spotlights.
